UVB-2 Bitumen modification unit 20 m3/hour production capacity

This is a 20 m3/hour bitumen modification unit. The growing road construction and repair market leads to growing modified bitumen demand.

The 20 m3/hour unit solves that problem. The double stream process used in this unit reduces the load on the shearing part of the mill and extends mill service life.

The compatibility of bitumen and polymers is essential to obtain a high-quality final product. The polymer can absorb oil components of the binder, preserving its structure. Due to the modification process, bitumen is turned into an elastomer with improved elasticity.

Modern petrochemical industry professionals attempt to maximize the yield of light oil products and extract most of the paraffin-naphthenic fractions from bitumen. This reduces its flexibility at low temperatures and softening point at high temperatures. Most modern bitumen will lose elasticity at approximately twenty degrees (20oC) and begin to soften between +45oC and 48oС. The use of non-modified bitumen in both road construction, which requires a binder with a temperature range from -40oC to +70oC, and for roofing materials, which are often subjected to temperatures up to 90oC, is inefficient. Fortunately, there are ways to change and improve the properties of bitumen by mixing it with various additives. This is best achieved using special bitumen modification units such as the GlobeCore UVB bitumen modification system.
